An orthodontic assistant is a specialized dental assistant who helps an orthodontist with patients wearing braces and orthodontic appliance for corrective procedures for alignment and spacing issues. The orthodontic assistant is deeply involved in patient care, from infection control and preparing instruments to obtaining and maintaining patients’ orthodontic records. This program will train students on assisting an orthodontist with procedures related to straightening the teeth, such as adjusting braces, making impressions for diagnostic models, taking photos, radiographs and helping with office administrative duties.
Program coursework may include topics like:
The orthodontic assistant may work in general dental practice and specialized orthodontic practices and has close personal contact with patients. This demands a high level of maturity, integrity, honesty, ethics and responsibility. Good hand-eye coordination, visual memory and judgment of space are vital. An assistant is sitting for most work, often for long periods. On occasion, lifting and operating office machinery are required. Answering telephones and maintaining a patient record is not outside the scope of this position. An orthodontic assistant must be a team player, working closely with the orthodontist and other staff members.
